From childhood to Senior living and every stage in between there are bumps in the road that get in the way of an individual living his/her best life. Some of those bumps like depression, anxiety or low self esteem can make it hard to move forward. Cecilia welcomes the opportunity first of all to really listen to the person and join them right where they are. She moves toward helping them understand and overcome their obstacles, journeying with them, towards healing and healthy choices.
Navigating the grade school, high school or college environment can bring out emotional, social or academic stresses that can be overwhelming. Cecilia’s goal is to alleviate the young person’s anxiety and depression. She explores unhealthy behaviors and teaches coping skills to help them manage stressful situations.
Respect opens the door to friendship, which opens the door to intimacy.
In her practice Cecilia works with couples who have lost their way in the relationship with their partners. Whether they are suffering from affairs, addictions, loss of romance and intimacy, or the inability to communicate at all she can help them find their way back. Cecilia is a follower of the Gottmann method and works with couples to help them overcome communication difficulties in order to promote mutual respect, which is the foundation for building intimacy and recapturing their friendship.
